If you drop by one of our stores here , our suit experts can measure you professionally for free. If you’re going to shop online, you might have to get the measuring tape out and do it yourself. Here are some pointers:
1 – Measure around the base of your neck where a shirt collar will sit. Take the measurement with your index finger underneath the tape – you should be able to fit it between your neck and your collar for a snug but still-breathable fit.
2 – Measure around the broadest part of your chest, making sure that the tape is just below the armpit and above your shoulder blades. Keep the tape flat against your body and parallel to the ground.
3 – For jackets and blazers, measure around your natural waistline (the narrowest part of your waist). For trousers, measure from the widest part of your waist, roughly 6cm below your natural waistline.
4 – Relax your arms down by your side. Measure from the tip of your shoulder and down your arm to where you want your cuff to sit. Your jacket sleeve should sit pretty much bang on your wrist bone, while your shirt cuff should be 1-2cm longer.
5 – Measure from the inside leg at the crotch to where you want your trouser hem to sit on your shoe. For a tailored look, your trousers should sit on top of your shoe, with no crease or one crease maximum at the hem. For a modern, cropped look, aim for just above your ankle bone.
